    The acidities and proteins in sweet wines change at different rates if subjected to pressure, and so Alain therefore dug a deep trench in his cellar, dry-lined it and buried several barrels in dry sand, deciding via the bio-dynamic calendar on the perfect day to unearth them six years later. A flor develops over the surface of the wine, exactly like a vin jaune in the Jura, and the flavours concentrate and deepen. Extraordinary wine again from a very fine vintage, nutty and spicy, with flavours of figs, dried apricots and mountain honey. Unfined and unfiltered. For drinking now to 2021+.
